Curious to see how he'll be received in Japan given the strong Japanese themes he has going for him.
"Oh Drift-chan, you smell awesome, and not at all like feet!"
Which reminds me, I still need to get that Flame Toys super awesome Drift action figure. Sigh...
I think they will like it. There's a lot of Wing fanart in Japanese.
Ahhh this takes me back, remember when people got so pissy over Drift for literally no reason? I remember. I'm never gonna stop reminding idiots how they overreacted in regards to him. People were so overly cynical when he was introduced yet nowadays they embrace practically every stupid OC that IDW comes up with.
Yep. The vitriol was highly refined and weapons grade.
This mini was probably the best thing McCarthy wrote, at least within the IDWverse. And I kinda dig Wing, even though I think he should be retconned into being the actual Wingwaver Wing.
Well, they really like cliché characters, so I guess this one is gonna be a huge success.
トランスフォーマー : ゲイリー・ストゥ
Such a beautiful cover.
It'll work for the Japanese readers.
Am I wrong to feel like this is slightly racist? ...Samurai Robot, cherry blossoms....
Bad joke, I know. No offense intended.
It depends on the eye of the viewer. The artist is Japanese, so I don't think he feels offended at all.
I'm just making bad jokes, don't mind me. Though it really is interesting to see many of these 'new' characters who were created during the IDW Generation who have successfully developed their own following and traction to a wider audience.
Still need a decent transformable IDW styled Drift figure...
Great rendition btw. Loving that Japan centric art.
There's strong Japanese themes in Drift?
More like surface-level weeb pandering. Nothing in Drift was particularly "Japanese" in its themes or stories beyond him looking like a Japanese mecha. It was remarkably shallow.
I believe he's tongue-in-cheek referencing a comment made by Shane McCarthy.
He's more like a new character in a sequel, this is more Mary Sue than Windblade, the character was there from the beginning with two swords. Whose since been included in all future projects in different universes.
